Jamie Ruby made a phone interview with Summer Glau and Alphas's showrunner Bruce Miller for SciFi Vision, a few days before the season finale. Summer talks on working on Alphas, her role as Skylar, her relations with other cast member, her Christmas movie for Hallmark Channel 'Help for the Holidays', Knights of Badassdom and more.
Here's the (sorted) transcript of @scifivision live tweets related to Summer Glau, as well as some answers from Bruce Miller :
She would love to come back to Alphas (sounds like it's a possibility), she loves working with the cast
Bruce Miller (former Eureka showrunner): it was a blessing that Syfy let Eureka be its own self (only regret is they never had Summer Glau on it)
Summer Glau says she can barely program her garage remote - is "gadget challenged" lol
Skylar who provides the props helps Summer Glau to understand the tech because it doesn't come naturally to her.
Bruce Miller remembers Summer Glau asking him what voltage meant! lol, but he believes her on the show so she's a great actress. He said : "Summer Glau's natural curiosity allows her to be a better Skylar."
He says the finale will be "great" - everything that you think they never actually go there, they go there. The finale is incredibly surprising and unpredictable sets up an amazing season three."
Summer Glau has always found in sci-fi the roles of women are exciting and outside the box. She said : "coming from being a dancer, it was a great way to transition to acting through physical roles (action)"
When she played River in Firefly she had a hard time communicating with the other characters, she communicated through the physicality
She will be visiting her hometown soon.
She said she got a "little bit over excited" seeing the cast of Game of Thrones at New York Comic Con
Summer Glau would take any opportunity to get back together with the Firefly cast & crew (yay)
She hasn't been approached for a Syfy Saturday movie
She talks about playing Supergirl. Voice over is very different than filming; didn't know what would be like; was an addicting experience to strip all but voice. Shesays it was challenging to what she was comfortable with which is good
SciFi Vision will publish soon a more complete interview with Summer Glau and Bruce Miller, and other interviews are underway, stay tuned.
Don't forget to watch Alphas season finale next Monday at 8/7c on Syfy.
